La Conner Re-opens.

As Skagit County moves to Phase 2 of the Governor’s Safe Start Plan, several of La Conner’s facilities will re-open to the public.

The La Conner Town Hall will re-open to the public on June 1, 2020. Customers and guests are asked to observe the following protocols in order to safeguard other members of the public and Town staff:

1. Please visit Town Hall one at a time. Comfortable seating has been placed on the exterior of Town Hall along Douglas Street, for residents and visitors to wait at until those in front have completed their business. The seating will be placed 6 feet apart to maintain appropriate distancing. We ask that if friends or family members accompany you, they wait outside unless it is necessary for them to assist. Pets that are not service animals should not accompany you on your visit inside Town Hall.

2. If someone is in front of you, please wait patiently outside until called in. Town staff will take steps after each visitor departs to disinfect any areas that may have been touched.

3. Please wear a mask. We don’t want to risk you or Town staff becoming inadvertently exposed to the coronavirus.

4. Please understand that we are returning to normal, but we are not quite there yet. The steps we are taking to keep everyone safe takes extra effort and time, but is worth it. We appreciate your patience.

5. Please check to see if the business you want to accomplish can be handled online, or over the telephone. We continue to urge everyone to take advantage of available options to save yourself a trip.

Yard waste and compost: As of June 1, 2020, charges for yard waste and compost will be reimposed. Yard waste and compost punch cards must be purchased at Town Hall. Cash or check is accepted.

Because of continuing restrictions, the La Conner Senior Center will remain closed at this time. Re-opening the Senior Center will take place at such time as we have been informed that it is safe to do so.

A helpful tool at this time is the website for the unemployment law project: https://unemploymentlawproject.org/ They are taking calls at (206) 441-9178 or toll free at 1 (888) 441-9178, to answer questions from those that have been laid off or are looking for help navigating the unemployment benefit trail.
